trying to figure out what opening size will work for a memphis shades alley cat or big shot on a vtx 1800n. i measured mine light at about 7.5 inches.

they just sell 7″ or 9″ headlight opening sizes but don’t list model specific info at the ms site. so i probablly need the 9″.

i may have a line on buying a used one for a vtx 1300 so i am trying to figure out which size opening it would be? does anyone know?

edit: found app chart at ms that lists – note 2 “must use windshield with 9″ headlight cutout” below the app chart for 1300 and 1800s – http://www.memphisshades.com/honda-sportshield#fork size 1d

so i think they are both the same (9″) but would like to know for sure.

i have a c model. where my headlight passes through my switchblade it measures about 8″ diam. max diam looks to be about 8 1/2″. i can measure with calipers if you think you need.

thanks for the reply…….i think the 1300 and 1800 all use the 9″ opening ms sport shields.

now if i could find a used ms trigger lock mounting kit +61404532026 i would be proabably all set

all of the vtxs whether 1300 or 1800 use the same headlight. with the exception of the f model which is slightly narrower and a bit longer overall with a squarish profile across the top.
